Have you ever been driving down the street and saw a church on the corner and something was telling you to go inside? That still small voice is God showing you where He wants you.
Think About It
If you had Jesus sitting across from you, what would you ask Him? Would you asking Him why He lets "innocent" people die? What about, "how could He send people to hell"? Or, "why isn't He answering my prayers"?
Two words can start the answer to these and many more questions, FREE WILL (John 3:18)
In the perfect world He created there was no sin, death, or disease. When Adam & Eve were convinced by the serpent that they wouldn't die if they ate of the fruit of the tree of life, they made a choice. God wasn't standing over them telling them not to listen to the serpent. He allowed them to choose to obey or disobey. Because they disobeyed their eyes were opened to good and evil. As a result, sin entered their perfect world followed by disease and death. Their disobedience (SIN) separated them from God (DEATH). (Genesis 3:1-19)
Because of that first sin, God's perfect creation was turned upside down. Therefore, there is not one single person in all creation that is "innocent". We are born sinful and have to be taught to be good. And, He doesn't let people die. Death is one of the consequences of sin. It didn't exist until that first disobedience. Disease didn't exist until that first disobedience. Life started to deteriorate and has continued to do so as time has gone forward.
God doesn't send people to hell either. As I stated before, we have the right to choose. We can choose to believe and have faith in God through His Son and live forever (John 14:6) or we can choose to not believe and spend eternity separated from Him in hell forever (Isaiah 59:2). God doesn't force anything on us but allows us to choose...life or death.
He does answer prayer though. If we believe and are a child of God (having received Him as our personal Lord and Savior) He hears our prayers. He answers them according to His will. He knows what is best for us and can see the bigger picture. We may not like it or understand it but He is watching out for us. If we only cry out when there is a problem but don't have faith, how can He hear us? Without Jesus, our sin separates us from Him and He can't hear us. (John 14:6)
Without God we are condemned to an eternity of suffering and separation from Him.
With God we receive the free gift of life and blessings beyond measure. (John 15:4-6)
